WATCH: Florida QB Feleipe Franks gets pulled but still expertly trolls Kentucky fans

It was not the best night for Florida Gators redshirt freshman quarterback Feleipe Franks on the field. It’s not that he played overly poor — Franks completed 7-of-12 passes for 85 yards with a touchdown — but Franks did struggle with his progressions and was replaced with redshirt junior QB Luke Del Rio as a means of kick-starting the offense.

Yet while it was Del Rio leading the Gators on back-to-back touchdown drives to end the game and complete a 28-27 comeback victory on the road in Lexington, Kentucky, Franks seemingly had no problem both supporting his teammate during the game and trolling Wildcats fans after it from the sideline.

As you can see in the video above from SEC Country‘s Ryan Young, Franks spent a portion of the post-game celebration simply waving to Big Blue Nation as if he was a member of the British royal family. He may not have been the one to put the final dagger in Kentucky on Saturday, but Franks ensured that Florida’s SEC East rival knew exactly what program extended its 31-game series winning streak, the longest active streak in the nation against an annual opponent.

    I attended the game on Saturday night and was appalled by the behavior or the Gator team. Number 11 actually used an obscene gesture as he left the field. Both hands raised, as if he were being awarded a trophy!
    Of course I am a true Blue, Kentucky fan, but I would have never expected a player to act this way!
    I saw where he and another team mate had taunted the Tennessee crowd the week before in the same manner. What on earth is going on in Florida?!!!! Teach these young men sportsmanship. You don’t want your team to be known as Thugs!
